Reservations & private events

Private events

Our beloved, distinct properties can be rented for small gatherings, daytime retreats, or large, multi-faceted events ranging in size from 20 – 700 guests. Submit your inquiry on contact page – click here. Note: the music venue side is typically booked 5-8 months in advance. If you are inquiring about a weekend evening rental, we recommend contacting us well in advance (a year+) when planning date and times. If you are an agent, approved external promoter, or an artist, contact our booking team.

Host Your Party in the Secret Garden + Back Patio:

Great for casual parties, we accept secret garden and back patio reservation inquiries year round, but only book, due to Portland’s zany weather, the spaces between April thru October – for groups of 20-80. You’ll need to reserve both spaces if your party is greater than 40 people. Note: The Secret Garden is not covered. The back patio area is covered with a retractable awning + heaters. We humbly offer Portland weather and the space/spaces as-is.

audio & video recording services:

Mississippi Studios is an acoustically designed room with non-parallel walls and excellent, professional recording rig permanently installed. Live performances at Mississippi Studios can be captured by our expert audio engineers & videographers using our in-house recording gear.  ALL recording requests must be coordinated during show advance, no exceptions.

we do not allow board feeds or tapers.

Here’s why: 1. Board feeds are terrible by nature; the loudest instruments in the room are often not being amplified by the PA system (drums, loud amps), thus the stereo feed is all whacked out with vocals, effects, and acoustic instruments. 2. For multitrackers, we don’t want outside gear introducing buzzes or electronic noise into our system or unnecessary wear and tear on the direct out circuits/jacks (or our engineers). 3. Takes space in front of the board & looks/feels unprofessional. 4. We have figured out the most quality, reliable way to capture and multitrack shows for next-to-nothing, and we want to pass it on to artists.

video:

We do NOT allow ad-hoc videotaping of events for these reasons: video cameras take away from the ambience of the room and intimacy/now-ness of the performance and take up space. The Fire Marshall forbids tripods. We will occasionally allow use of handhelds/shoulder mounts but ONLY if a production plan is presented at least 7 days in advance that includes: (a) plans for the audio capture, (b) post-production plans and (c) WRITTEN permission of the artists (we provide form). To avoid “imperial entanglements” we require bold and clear signage notifying patrons that they will be videotaped (we provide). For Audio & Video Technical Inquiries: natasha@mississippistudios.com
